Just before dawn one winter's morning, a hijacked jumbo jet blows apart high above the English Channel. Two figures fall to the sea, later washing up, alive, on a beach. It was an ambiguous miracle, for both seem to have acquired curious changes. Both have been chosen as opponents in the eternal wrestling match between Good and Evil.

Our world-Wikipedia and Salman Rushdie are doing biased? Satanic Verses?! But if we analyze, observation, scrutiny and evaluate the Holy Bible for our faith... but the whole world is 666-Satanic System-{we've already compromised and members in the UNITED NATION-666) and here's my link: https://www.facebook.com/notes/bienvenido-bones-ba%C3%B1ez-jr/introduction-satanic-verses-of-bones-banez/10152561898933776 / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satanic_Verses#Basic_narrative
WELCOME BONES 666 ART WORLD SATANIC VERSES!
Introduction: SATANIC VERSES OF BONES BANEZ
Shortly after the great Deluge, a tyrant named Nimrod appeared on earth, some Bible scholar describe him as ''a mighty hunter in opposition to YHWH {Jehovah)'' truly part of the Serpent's or Satanic-seed. And Nimrod inspired from Satan desires he showed a spirit of opposition or first revolutionary and built the city of Babel, or Tower of Babel and Egyptian and Babylon the Great, in defiance or against of YHWH {Jehovah) purpose to have to mankind spread out to fill the earth and today into presence modern world United Nation the final 666 world power. As mankind multiplied, other ambitious humans followed like Nimrod, Pharoah, Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander th Great, Julius Caesar, Emperor Claudius, King Philip II of Spain, Napoleon of France, Adolf Hitler, Lenin, and Mao tse-tung, these are example in seizing power or control the Satanic world 666. Man began to dominate man to his injury.--{Ecclesiastes 8:9) We testify or witnessed the great grand modern technology military power and organizational 666 geniuses carved out huge empires for their own enrichment desire, fame and glory into sucking colors then swallowing soul. The Bible prophecy refers to some of these, including Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia{#), Greece{#), Rome and today Anglo-America and the final United Nation-666!, well showing themselves to be part of the Satanic seed of the Serpent,-- 1 John 5:19 { We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.)
The angel was obviously not referring to Persian King Cyrus, who at that time looked with favor upon Daniel and his people. Moreover, how could a mere human king resist a spirit creature for three weeks when it took one angel only one night to destroy 185,000 mighty warriors? -Isaiah 37:36 , This hostile 'prince of Persia' could only be an agent of the Devil, that is, a demon who was given control over the realm of the Persian Empire. Later in the account, God's angels stated that he would once again have to fight against ''the prince of Persia'' and another demon prince, 'the prince of Greece.''--Daniel 10:20}-- Roots of the 666 World Powers of Daniel's Prophecy, The immense image -{Daniel 2:31-45) , Four Beast out of the sea -{Daniel 7:3-8, 17,25) These are the Demon Prince and they are part of Satanic seed of the Serpent.
This beast, created and empowered by Satan, has the number 666, denoting heightened imperfection. Understanding what the beast is helps us so that we neither follow it with admiration, idolized nor worship it as mankind in general does.óJohn 12:31; 15:19. This mark is mentioned at Revelation 13:16-18. The beast refers to human rulership like United Nation, and the beastís bearing ďa manís numberĒ indicates that our world governments reflect the fallen human condition. The 6 plus 60 plus 600 shows that it is utterly deficient in Godís eyes. Those who bear this mark give worshipful honor to the political State, or they look to it for salvation from Satanic seed of the Serpent desire.
(But as a most reprehesible part of the seed of the Serpent, the scribes and the Pharisees in first-century Judaism took the lead in persecuting and finally murdering the primary representative of the seed of the woman-{Jesus Christ) Thus, the Serpent {Satan) was able to bruise him {the ''seed'' -Jesus Christ) in the heel.'' {Genesis 3:15),)
{And take note:In passing judgment on
